Collection and sharing of information: Via the Google +1 button, you can publish information worldwide. Via the Google +1 button, you and others can receive personalised content from Google and our partners. Google stores the information provided by you for your +1 along with information about the website you were viewing when you clicked +1. Your +1s can appear to others as a notice together with your profile name and photo in Google services, such as in search results or on your Google profile, or elsewhere on websites and advertisements on the internet.

This name will be used across all Google services. In some cases it may replace another name you have used when sharing content from your Google account. The identity of your Google profile can be displayed to others who know your e-mail address or have other identifying information.
Use of collected information:
In addition to the above-mentioned uses, the information you provide is used in accordance with Google’s data protection declaration. Google may share aggregate statistics relating to users’ +1 activity with other users and their partners, .e.g. publishers, advertisers or connected websites.
